For anyone who may have missed it, I just shared a new PERFECT rip of my "Chains Of Love" USA Promo CDS here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=42001

After doing some reading, I decided to try ripping it on a different computer - my older Mac Mini - and I got a perfect rip! Life is good. :D

This is awesome; thanks!!

I have a question for you though... the cover art scan you included with it does not match the cover art for the promo CD as shown at https://www.discogs.com/Kraftwerk-Expo2 ... ase/246055 — Is that the release you have?

The reason I ask is because your art is square instead of rectangular, and has the text placed differently relative to the rest of the artwork. The only match I can find for your artwork is the UK 12" at https://www.discogs.com/Kraftwerk-Expo2 ... ease/16542

Perhaps it is a case of your ripping software offering you some choices from online databases and you chose one that was close enough, but it is sowing confusion among the more detail-obsessed types like me. :D So if you could confirm what you have that would be great.

By the way, my wife has a name for any band's lame comeback song... "it's their Expo2000". LOL

It is just simply my choice of cover art, the one I have is the rectangular cover you described,

I have them ripped at 320 but will go flac if someone really wants it. I never really gave it much thought that the promo's had different single versions than the extended commercially sold CD's.

Can you re-up this one?

Thanks in advance.
